Below is a pretty tasty Mexican appetizer for the upcoming holiday.

Ingredients

1/2 lb flank steak, cut into thin strips
1 medium white onion, sliced
1 large red bell pepper, sliced
1 large green bell pepper, sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon lime juice, bottled
¼ tsp chili powder
¼ tsp black pepper
Nacheez brand sauce
non-stick oil spray
6 gluten free tortillas


Instructions

Warm oil in a skillet over a medium-high heat. Add steak and cook 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently. Add onion, bell peppers, and garlic. Cook until vegetables are tender. Stir in lime juice, chili powder, and black pepper. Reduce to low heat.

Spread Nacheez sauce over half of each tortilla and top with steak/vegetable mixture. Fold tortillas in half. Repeat for remaining tortillas. Lightly spray non-stick oil on a second skillet and warm over a medium heat. Cook quesadillas for 1-2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.

The Nacheez sauce in the above recipe is a GFCFSF cheese sauce available in some specialty food stores. Below is a link I've found which sells it online:
